PiperJet stands out among other VLJ. When designing a particularly light jets, aircraft designers prefer to supply them with two motors. Experience shows that the use of so much safer and more reliable. But also more expensive. The company NewPiperAircraft went their own way, offer a variant with single-engine jet. The challenge before the designers were very difficult - to reduce costs and maintenance costs.

The announced price PiperJet, which is designed for five passengers - 2,2 million. The market just does VLJ cheaper modestEclipse 500.

Piper Jet has a single turbofan engine, which is mounted on the tail, and it is a guarantee of security in the destruction. Modern avionics system takes on board the aircraft in place. Jet has very small dimensions: length - 10,29m, and height - 5,03m.

Despite the affordable price, PiperJet has a toilet room - it's really a luxury for particularly light jets, where every extra centimeter of the saloon is a special achievement. Now, among manufacturers, a real "toilet war" is being deployed. Smaller planes that are not equipped with a toilet, only in the United States each year make several thousands of unplanned landings due to the fact that suddenly "prispichilo" passenger. The first VLJs were designed without taking into account these statistics. In them, at best, a toilet was provided, which disguised itself as a spare seat in the tail of the cabin. Separated from the main compartment with a curtain in the literal sense. How to use it in flight, it's hard to imagine.

Piper Jet plans to certify to control with a single pilot.
